Recruits underwent weapons training and many became Home Guard Auxiliaries when allowed to do so. The organisation was disbanded in December 1944 continuing as the Women's Rifle Assocation. Mrs Hermitage attended the meeting called by Dr Summerskill to form the WHD and became chairman of the Holburn branch. The branch met in the Royal Hotel and their rifle range was in thr crypt of a City church.
